Quick Tip: Create a bookmark for the websites you visit often.

Why: Sneaky hackers purchase and set up fraudulent websites that are a close misspelling of legitimate ones.

For example, a hacker might use “faceboook.com” instead of “facebook.com”. All you have to do is accidentally fat-finger ONE letter in the URL and up pops a very legitimate-looking, fake copy of the site you were trying to get to–and the login and links are full of keylogger malware and virus landmines waiting for you to click on them. This is particularly important for any social networks you belong to.
